versus obama. the key question is just how can one data point influence voters ahead of the elections next week. that level of uncertainty, of course, going to make markets volatile after this report. it's coming at the same time where rising costs of hurricane sandy are coming in. that's something we have to look forward to in the november numbers, not impacting today. four days, of course, before the election. i think we can expect a politically charged payroll report later today. for now, back to you. >> we will see those numbers at 8:30 eastern time. less than three hours from now. julia, thanks so much. >>> as always this morning, you can e-mail me at waytooearly@msnbc.com. tweet me @williegeist. let me know what you're doing. >>> still ahead, richard engle takes to the skies above new york city to survey the damage. his report next. >>> plus -- >> number five -- >> single and looking to mingle? find that special someone on the early voting line. >> yeah, that's right. >> vice president joe biden stops by letterman to give his top ten reasons to vote early. that clip and a check
into pennsylvania, where obama's never been on the air. and in the last week, the last week of the election, obama is spenning about $2 million in pennsylvania and romney and his allies are spending $11 million. pennsylvania is going to go for romney. he is 3 points ahead now. those 20 electoral votes will put him over the top, long before we call the 18 in ohio. >> greta: all right. let me ask but ohio. all the polls are neck and neck so they are tied. so tell me why those polls are not to be public believed and why listening to you, we should think you are right in calling ohio? >> because the polls that are out there, for example, the times/cbs poll interviewed 38% democrats and 29% of their sample are republicans. about an 8 or 9-point democratic advantage. now in 2008, there was an 8-point democratic advantage, that's a good sample for the '08 election. but in '04, there was a 4-point republican advantage. if you take '04, '06, '08 and 'steb, you get equal democrats and republicans in the sample. so if you believe there will be a huge turnout among minorities and young people, that the enthus
is not for obvious reason sois think if obama is re-elected i'm not sure, it is to the going to be a top priority. >> re-elected? >> re-elected, just gave me a cold chill. >> maybe in the second term it will be. if obama is re-elected he will be. and i suspect they would be happy to go back to george w. bush was trying to do a few years ago. but it is a tragedy we haven't really talked about because it is much harder to get something passed. >> how do you see it. >> i think the republican party is kursd and it's cursed itself. and they spent 22 debate, presidential candidates arguing about who was the most against or building the biggest, widest most daunting even electrified wall to keep people out. and mitt romney ran to the right of newt gingrich and rick perry. he was the most try ghent-- strident, round them up and toss them out of the country. >> energy time, and political capital to pass legislation state after state to make it more difficult to vote, primarily for latinos. and third they don't campaign in their neighborhoods or their community t they don't ask for their vote, and finally
out on any limb, given my weight, but if the election were held tomorrow, obama would win, based on early voters. >> evan? >> obama, but we still have a long way to go. >> nina? >> i hate doing this, but i would say obama because of the ground again, but that is just today. >> that's ok. colby? >> the national tracking polls as them close, but if you go to the key battleground states, obama still holds a lead in those states and that will put him over the top. >> what is the ground game, mark? >> the organized effort over months to identified not only supporters not onlyleaners -- only supporters, but leaners. by election day, you know who your voters are and you want to be sure they go to a. > -- to vote. >> in many the battleground states, obama has more field offices. >> it comes down to micro- managing and micro-issuing these folks. the republicans have a better ground game in 2004, and a lot of people think it that is why they won that close election, and it fell into disrepair today are building it back up now, but i don't think they are near where obama is yet. >> which c
drive them to the polls on election day? even among the fervent obama supporters at this rally, this is a common theme. >> were you more excited four years ago or more excited today? >> i have to say honestly, i was more excited four years ago. >> reporter: meanwhile, fervent supporters at the romney rally often have their own nuanced motivations. are you more emotional about wanting romney to win or wanting obama to lose? >> wanting obama to lose, yes. most definitely. >> reporter: that motivates you? >> yeah. he let the whole country down. >> reporter: candidates appreciate any kind of support. but the more unconditional and enthusiastic that support is, the more likely that voter will go to the polls. and voter turnout on november 6th will be critical. romney strategists have been concerned that the perceived lack of their candidate's competitiveness could ultimately lead to less enthusiasm and therefore, a lower turnout. so the message being emphasized to the gop base is that romney can win. than makes the message from obama strategists all the more interesting. in order to
the issues. don't just vote, vote smart. >> obama: the election will take care of itself next week. right now our number one priority is to make sure we are saving lives. >> announcer: heard around the country and seen on current tv, this is the "bill press show." >> bill: president obama on the job yesterday at the white house, commander in chief for hurricane sandy. back to your calls about how this election -- how the storm impacts the election. first, here is a little item that caught my attention. even members of the armed services, subject to identity theft. story out of washington state. officials raided several locations in washington state. finding that hundreds of people including active duty military personnel had their identities stolen. you hear a story like that. you need some protection against identity theft. i recommend -- what i've got. lifelock ultimate. i recommend it. it includes keeping track of your bank accounts. but of course, lifelock can't protect you or your bank account if you're not a member

gets elected, that's the debate you'll have. if obama gets elected, it's how high do taxes go. if romney is legislated, how low can we keep taxes. the second part we need badly is how can we reform the tax system? how can we either go to a flat tax or at least flatten our taxes so that we end up with one or two rates. we end up with fewer deductions, fewer exemptions, put that money in a lower rate. i think governor romney is absolutely right, you don't list those now. he couldn't know what they are now. that's what you negotiate about, but the difference in direction will be dramatic. in one case, the direction will be how do we increase revenues to the government? the other case, the direction will be how do we at least keep revenues where nay are and see if we can't reduce them a little. where do we find reductions in the spending? that's a very, very exciting period of time to go through. that's what i went through when i worked for president reagan as associate attorney general. president reagan, as you know, even with a democratic house of representatives, was able to do
is that obama might lose the election. it is that simple. >> yes, it is and it stinkings of high heaven. in 2008 members of the new black panther party intim dating white voters investigation was stone walled by eric holder. i don't remember them looking for the un, are we turning over our voters security to ahmadinejad? >> and the they are nonpartisan and they don't have a horse in the race? >> it is not a big deal. looking at polls it say close election maybe it doesn't hurt to have another set of eyes putting out a report. we don't want to see a reprise. we shouldn't cut fund toz. un! another set of the eyes so partisan. to virginia where fraudulent absentee ballots cast and milwaukee where the adult population exceeded by those who voted. they are not looking for fraud. they are trying to embarrass the republicans. bad for obama to have the un in. >> and hear about the companies cutting staff and the stocks you want to hire, too. >> companies that are adding workers and ready to pay you. morgan store. >> i like them. they are hiring and analyst >> emac? >> it costs more. the stock is pricier
that obama wouldn't be re-elected. now if obama gets re-elected, that has passed. and john boehner will have to think about his feature as speaker. if he wants to stand with the tea party or stand with the vast moderate majority of people in this country who believe that there have to be some revenues, and there have to be some cuts, and there have to be entitlement reforms. there's a rational, sane middle road out there. if romney wins, then he will have to deal with the democrats in the senate which he will want to do, and he will have to say to his right wing as he has implicitly over the last three or four weeks that no, guys, we're not going to have this extreme policy. and as for tax rates mattered, i mean, i think we all live through the great depression of the 1990s after bill clinton raised taxes. and the great depression of the 1980s after ronald reagan raised taxes, especially on business, three times. >> we're going to have to see stop -- no, we're going to have stop, take a break. >>> when we come back, we'll talk inevitably about all this, but also going forward what's going to

state margin-wise election night. colorado symbolizes the political promise the obama presidency began with and the political reality of the presidency. colorado is a long-time target for democrats. they finally flipped in 2008. it was republican for decades except for in 1992 and flipped it in aa big way in 2008. nine point victory. the persist ents unemployment and economic problems dragged down the approval rating. colorado was ready it to revert to form, to old republican form in 2010, part of the national anti-republicans. a funny thing happened in the campaign. in the u.s. senate race it was buck against bennett. ken buck likened homosexuality to alcoholism and alienated this growing population of college educated socially liberal women who are upset with obama on the economy, but because of social issues they move strongly against ken buck. you see a big gender gap that took place in colorado, 56% to 40%. the growing latino population in colorado and the other thing in 2010 in colorado is he imploded and it became tom tancredo, the former republican congressman. he had the latin
states take this seriously. listen to your state and local elected officials. >> president obama has to oversee the hurricane response in the midst of an election. how he handled the crisis could impact the results. the storm is disrupting campaign stops and early voting schedules. it is clearing supermarket shelves in new york, one of the major cities in its past president. and scrambled to stock up on batteries, a tortoise, and canned fruits -- torches. the new york stock exchange will close its trading floor. the prospect of weather systems colliding makes people apprehensive with a fear that they are headed for a perfect storm. bbc news, new york. >> let's go live to staten island in new york. a resident is joining us. what is it like and how worried are you? >> i am really not worried, because we have taken all the precautions we can, short of evacuating. we have enough food to last a couple days. are you on the ground floor? what have you done to protect your property? >> we don't really have anything outside the house. but we have a seat for property -- a sea-floor property. >

first african-american president. do you think, if barack obama is not elected, tom, that it negates some of that? it dispels some of that accomplishment? >> i don't think it has anything to do with the african-american. the president would be the first to say i'm being related by what i did in office not in terms of the color of my skin. >> but in terms of history judging it? >> i think 9 sense of history will be did he succeed as president? that's the test. we don't give people an automatic pass, quite honestly. they have to measure up to the job that we expect them to do for everyone. he did inherit a very difficult situation. economically, two of the longest wars in the nation's history. but for the first time of years, until the election of 2010, he seemed not to have an extraordinarily clear, firm idea of how he wanted to lead the country, and how he wanted to -- how he was going to persuade the rest of us that it was in our best interest in the way that he was going to lead the country. >> more of our conversation today at 12:00 noon. we talk about similarities with this elect

(applause and cheers) >> i think that the fact that chicago had elected an african-american mayor in harold washington sort of emphasized with barack that he was coming to a city where blacks were a major presence and had some significance. >> narrator: washington's politics were a living example of what obama was looking for. >> what washington was able to do was to put together these coalitions-- african-americans, latinos and progressive whites. and he was able to pull that together and beat the machine. >> god bless you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart. >> and that kind of coalition building was incredibly influential for barack. >> narrator: obama's laboratory would be the city's south side. >> we had put an ad in a number of newspapers for a community organizer in the south side of chicago. i'm looking for anybody who might be a good organizer, but i particularly need somebody who's african-american. >>

report before the election. the latest poll asking voters asking about the obama handling of the economy, 52% say they disapprove. 45% say they approve. we don't know what is going to happen friday. that is not a good number? >> 52% disapprove is an improvement from the 61% improvement. >> its relatively better number for the president. i don't think the job numbers are going to turn the race upside-down. the electorate has a good sense how they view the economy, whether they think it's sag nate go or getting any better. i don't think a jobs report would have much of an effect. >> greta: last month a lot of people say the last jump was 8.1 to 7.8 but it would be trend if it went down. >> it would be trend, but i have to think and hope that the people that are really still, the last job number to make up my mind. that is going to tell me. it's quite small. nms you have a dramatic job number that changes the picture as we think we know it, it's unlikely. it's surprising to me the president's numbers could be that bad on the economy and we could have a tied race in the national polls. it do

're on the "countdown" to the election. we'll give you compelling reasons why you must give president obama another four years. we'll focus on three election topics incredibly important issues that some how failed to make headlines in this brutal campaign. first the war on drugs. ethan nadelman said although obama has been a disappointment in some ways romney would be a disaster in fighting the the war on drugs. then in the aftermath of super storm sandy, climate change. it still has not been a critical part of our political debate. we'll ask josh becker why president obama deserves an a-plus in the way he handled hurricane sandy. and then we weigh in on what to expect if governor romney goes to the white house. we'll bring a look at the tight race with fresh statistics from dave goldberg, and finally jesse jackson why obama's track record is enough to give him a second term. we'll begin with the war on drugs. ethan nadelman wants to legalize marijuana among others things. he has a clear message. take marijuana out of the courts. tax it like other drug and move on. ethan. great to have you on the show.
